In brief: Stretch
Look up stretches for shin splints.
They are highly successful- if this doesnt help, then see a specialist.

In brief: Many options
Shin pain not from trauma can be treated with daily stretching, ice packs, heating pads, strengthening exercises, and over the counter anti-inflammatory medications such as advil or aleve (naproxen).
If these don't help, best to see a doctor to make sure of the diagnosis.
